General Information 
How Cub Scouting Works

Scouting is Family Oriented

Activities are intended for the whole family

You work with your son on his advancement toward requirements

Many skills he will learn are family oriented

The Cub Scout Den

Your son is a member of a Cub Scout den

The den meets on a regular basis

The den is led by a den leader (usually a parent)

The den leader usually has an assistant den leader, a den chief (a Boy Scout helper), and

a denner (a Cub Scout elected by den members)

Den meetings have games, crafts, songs, ceremonies, and lots of fun

The Cub Scout Pack

Your son is a member of a Cub Scout pack

A pack meets once per month

- all Cub Scout families attend

The pack meeting is led by the Cubmaster

The pack meeting is the highlight of the month’s den meeting and activities

Pack meetings have games, song, skits, stunts, ceremonies, and presentations of badges that boys

earned during the month



The Pack Meeting 

The pack is run by a committee of volunteer parents 

The pack committee is made up of all den leaders, the Cubmaster, and parents

The pack committee is led by a chairperson

The committee plans den and pack meetings around the monthly theme

The committee selects leaders, performs record keeping, manages finances, finds meeting places, orders

badges, maintain pack equipment, helps train leaders, and recognizes leaders



The Chartered Partner

The pack is “owned” by the chartered partner, usually a school, parent association, religious  

 organization, service club, or other organization interested in helping youth. The chartered partner

approves leaders, provides a meeting place, and operates the pack within their own guidelines and the

guidelines of the Boy Scouts of America.
